Residential Replacement Windows
A home’s windows are an important consideration. Aesthetically, they provide the home’s architectural focal point from the outside and a permanent fixture of internal décor. Comfort-wise, windows with excellent seals that prevent drafts are generally more desirable to sit beside. Economically, windows with excellent seals and insulated glass will reduce costs of heating and cooling your home. There are plenty of reasons to invest in an upgrade in your windows, and Universal Windows Direct can help you make the right choice.
Replacing windows can be a major decision. But when you let the professionals at Universal Windows Direct help, you will end up with windows that bring you ease and smiles for the life of the home.
Energy Efficient. Secure and Durable.
Our energy-efficient windows have tight seals, with a polyurethane foam integrated into their design. This eliminates the draftiness characteristic of metal-framed and wood-framed windows.
One way that our windows provide energy efficiency is with a tight seal that keeps the outdoor air outside and the indoor air perfectly climate-controlled to your liking. Indeed, our windows are 3 to 23 times more airtight than typical wood-framed windows, depending on the model you choose.
That means that the amount of air that leaks through just 1 of our windows is equivalent to the amount of air that would leak through a stack of 23 typical wood-framed windows combined.
We outdo most vinyl windows too, as our windows are 2 to 15 times more airtight than most vinyl. Poor window seals let heated or cooled air escape and outdoor air in, making your HVAC system work harder and raising costs.
The seals prevent drafts, but the window panes themselves must also be manufactured for energy efficiency. The Low-E energy-efficient glass used in our windows provides insulation within the windows.
As you know, an insulated space is an energy-efficient space. This Low-E glass also repels condensation, reducing the risk of mold developing on windows and causing health concerns.
The windows’ exterior is also coated with a UV-resistant surface which helps minimize water spots on the glass and the buildup of exterior dirt. With Universal Windows Direct replacement windows, cleaning your windows just became a whole lot easier.
Energy savings are not the only reason to upgrade. You can get a tax break for replacement windows, as Uncle Sam offers a tax credit for energy-efficient windows.
